L'illusion représentative

Abstract : This study critically questions representative democracy. Is the representative characterisation of democracy sufficient to make it a concept? In other words, does its contemporary form really satisfy its ideal? The delegation by the people to representatives, who are not agents in the legal but in the political sense of the term because of the nullity of the imperative mandate, raises the question of the election, i.e. the sole designation of a man or a woman and not the satisfaction of political demands, preventing de facto the electorate from really participating in the taking of decisions.
